Hasbro have confirmed Chewbacca is getting a 6" Star Wars Black Series release in line with the Solo (A Star Wars Story) releases this Spring/Summer.
Chewie is coming in the standard packaging, but will not be numbered and will be a Target exclusive in the US. He will come with his new two sided bandoleer and a new blaster rifle. His goggles will be removable. Outside of the head and the new accessories, the body looks to be the same as the previous Chewbacca releases.
UK / Global customers should be able to get this via the usual independent stockists, with Robot Kingdom already indicating they will open pre-orders shortly.
Also unveiled was the packaging for the previously announced Mimban Stormtrooper. This figure will deviate from the current Red/Black Phase 3 packaging to a dirty grey and black packaging which mirrors the heavy weathering the figure carries. He will come with an E11 blaster and a soft goods cloak.
This figure is exclusive to Walmart so UK collectors can hold out slim hope that the Walmart team may bring this to the UK via the Asda stores.
